3 out of 5 stars ★★★☆☆
After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock.
Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She’s broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy who’s now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob’s dark intensity makes her want to tease—and tempt—him beyond measure. Neither one wants to give any ground . . . until they realize the only true home they have is with each other.
Any time I want sweet, funny, and sexy, I know I can turn to a Jill Shalvis book to get my fix.
Nobody But You totally fits the mold. I love Sophie’s determination and independence. Also loved that it’s Jacob who realizes first that they are meant to be together, and has to drag Sophie to the obvious.
It’s the quirkiness of Shalvis’s characters that pull me in. And the fun banter between them.
Is it bad that I wanted more conflict with Jacob and Hud? Maybe it was wanting more time with all the Kincaids, especially Kenna and Mitch’s relationship. We still haven’t resolved Kenna’s issues with not competing anymore. So, I hope this isn’t the last book, b/c I’m going to miss the Kincaid siblings.
